Made this for dinner tonight and had our in-laws over. It was an all-around hit! I forgot to add the thyme (I only had dried, not fresh so I am not sure it would have made much of a difference anyway) and it was still delicious! My MIL said she was going to go home and tear the recipe from her copy of the magazine and save it! =)
